I also like that the Clip+ has an external volume control. The external volume control lets you change the volume without having to navigate back to the Now Playing Screen. That can be very handy at times.
I'm also considering the Fuze and Clip+. Right now I like the larger screen of the Fuze for navigation and don't think the smaller size of the Clip+ offers much advantage. Will probably use Rockbox.
When scrolling large lists with the scroll wheel, doe it accelerate?
Normally when the Fuze is playing, does it fall back to the Now Playing screen, so that the default action of the scroll wheel, should you (for example) just reach into your pocket while it's playing, is volume control?
